We have experiments, lab books, and resources for those whose students, teaching style, and resources better fit with a more classic approach to learning. In a classic approach, students are tasked with following detailed instructions to investigate specific scientific concepts, phenomena, or laws.
Vernier Lab Books for the Classic Approach
Vernier supports this more classic approach by providing a robust library of middle school lab books covering most science disciplines. Our lab books provide teacher-created step-by-step experiments that help your students work toward meeting the NGSS performance expectations and guide students through conducting hands-on experiments in a structured way.
